Moving away from the buildings, at the exit of the yard, the restaurant (99 sqm – 1,065 sqft, 3 bathrooms) consists of a large guest room, a professional kitchen with a pantry, guest bathrooms and employee bathrooms. The building was once a barn, recognizable by the windows with a brick pattern.

The estate covers over 66.4 hectares (164.1 acres) in the Tuscan Chianti hills, not far from the Castle of Brolio. Most of the estate is covered in woodland (44.2 ha), which ensures privacy and excellent opportunities for walks and excursions in the countryside.

Agriculturally, the property includes large sections of arable (4.9 ha) and grazing land (1.7 ha) that could easily be used to plant new crops on the farm. The land is also very suitable for planting vineyards, as evidenced by the numerous wineries in the area.

A large olive grove (about 6.6 ha for a total of 2,200 trees) produces up to 1,800 kg of excellent extra-virgin olive oil each year.

The vineyards (about 1.1 ha) are currently unused and need almost complete replanting.

The property has also been awarded ith planting rights for a total of 6.0 ha of vineyards: of these, 3.6 ha can be registered as Chianti Classico DOCG, the remaining area could instead be registered as Toscana IGT or as Vinsanto del Chianti DOC (depending on preference). Considering the production guidelines, the estate could produce up to 189 hl of Chianti Classico DOCG and 317 hl of Toscana IGT (equivalent to 25,000 and 42,000 bottles of wine respectively).

These rights, if interested, are available for the additional sum of 100,000 Euro.

A private lake, just below the main villa, is used for irrigation.

The property is in good condition, particularly the Agriturismo, which is currently a working business. The main villa is used as a private home by the owners, but the large size of the building and the possibility of renovating the agricultural premises for residential use allow for an expansion of the accommodation business.

The quiet and private location of the property, which enjoys a unique view of the Chianti hills and the Castle of Brolio, would also be perfect for creating a yoga/meditation centre.
